This one will take a week or two till it all come together but this is a starting point of one half of the project. My friends daughter has iniated this one for a birthday present for her father about the end of the first week into July so hope it will all come together in time.

That is an idea I will tuck away for another one Ted but this will make a neck sheath for a patch knife for his black powder shooting competitions. His daughter is sending a piece of antler for the handle

On with this little side project that I have going, the rawhide dogbone has been soaking in the bucket of water for 48 hours

So this morning I was able to unroll it and tack it out to dry on a board. There were a couple of smaller pieces inside when I unrolled it so there was a second smal piece I could save and tack out flat.

They will sit like this for the next week to dry completely,as I get the knife done that these will be used for
